A night of culture in Ireland

Any plans for next Friday? What about putting some culture in your Friday night? Culture Night takes place next week in Dublin and others 35 regions around Ireland.

Culture Night is an annual public event that celebrates creativity and arts. On this night, cultural organisations extend their opening hours to increase the access to the public. Special events and workshops are also specifically programmed. And best of all: everything is available free of charge!

The first event  was hosted  in 2006 just in Dublin. After that Culture Night has grown and now 350,000 people visit museums, galleries, historic houses, artists’ studios and cultural centres across the country.
